Cambridgeshire Reports

Horseheath, Cambridgeshire

Review of Horseheath by Sharon on November 13th, 2007
Horseheath is an historic village, just 12 miles from the city of Cambridge. The delightful church of All Saints dates back 600 years, with many secret treasures. Or maybe Linton Zoo and Gardens is more for you, home to Giant Tortoises, Tarantulas, Lions, Tigers and Owls, set in 18 acres with a children’s Play Area just waiting to be enjoyed. Or for the lovers of history Anglesey Abbey will not disappoint, this imposing Jacobean style country house was built in 1600 on the site of an Augustinian Priory. Once inside there are many treasures including a rare collection of artwork and a large collection of clocks, outside is just as impressive with a working Water Mill and attractive gardens. Or there is always Saffron Walden Museum that has exhibits from the Ice Age, through to Norman and Medieval times, add the two skeletons set under glass in the floor makes for an interesting visit, set in a meadow containing the ruins of a 12th Century castle. Or how about a visit to Chilford Hall Vineyard, where a guided tour of the Winery explains the journey of the grape, the ‘Vineyard Trail’ shows the different vines and travels close to the ‘Icknield Way‘.
